It’s the perfect opportunity for pattern on pattern.
A hitoe [my unlined jacket/blouse] over a hitoe with a trench on top.
I know you know about layering, whether the temperature drops down or goes up, you’ll be good.
Just add on another or peal one off.
Below, a crane covered peach hitoe under a grey one with pine needles.
Then, over the top, add a meisen trench coat.
Wear them together, alone, one on top of the other or the other way around.
Or this set, with a dot theme.
First, a hitoe sewn from a gorgeous kimono silk with tiny red dots scattered on a hemp leaf design.
Then add a black one with little red shibori dots.
And for the grand finale, an oh so very cool, polka dot meisen trench.
A detail, to show off these gorgeous kimono silks.
These and many more at the American Craft Council Show in Baltimore, MD. February 24 – 26.
See you there!
